Being part of this prestigious competition was a great opportunity to position our school as one of the premier schools in our city.
BEO is a program that provides students a safe, fun, friendly and structured environment in which to improve their knowledge of the English language and the world around them while experiencing first hand some of UK’s best cultural sites and enjoying a wealth of activities.
